  • I Corinthians 10:5-17
  • I Corinthians 10:8 – See Numbers 25:9. There have been many explanations given for the apparent discrepancy here (23,000 vs. 24, 000).  It may simple be that the Jews counted in whole numbers (for example, Jesus is described as being in the grave three days when it was less than 72 hours).  The actual number of those who died was probably between 23,000 and 24,000.
  • I Corinthians 10:11 – These stories were recorded so that we can understand how God looks at sin and just how serious of a matter it is.
  • I Corinthians 10:13 – Jesus showed us the way out of temptation: going back to what is written and praying.
  • I Corinthians 10:16 – The Lord’s Supper is a memorial of Jesus’ death. The bread and the cup do not represent His body and blood – they are a memorial.
